If you are trying to “sneak” in a workout mid day and still look like you just took a shower then follow these simple tips to keep you looking freash after your workout!
Question: “A hard lunchtime workout makes me sweat off all my makeup. How can I look put-together without doing my entire face over?”
Answer: Ah — depending on your level of intensity, there are several tricks to avoid wrecking your looks.
For Light Exercise: Apply a primer beneath foundation to act as a sweat-proof barrier, says Rebecca Morrice Williams, a makeup artist and founder of Becca Cosmetics.
For Moderate Exercise: If your plan involves heavy sweating, remove makeup with a cleansing cloth, then touch up after class with a compact powder foundation, lip gloss, and a shimmery shadow.
For Hard Workouts: Finally, did you do something truly high-intensity, like Spinning? If your face is flushed post-workout and your skin feels hot, wait about a half hour before reapplying makeup (source).
You never want to look like you worked out! These tips can help to keep you looking freash while you keep your figure in shape.
